Lloris coy on exit talk

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has refused to rule out a January exit from White Hart Lane.

The Frenchman only arrived to the club in the summer, but has been increasingly frustrated by the lack of playing time at the Lane.

France boss Didier Deschamps urged the 25-year-old to leave Tottenham in order to remain a first choice keeper in the national team and it looks as though the player could take his advice.

Asked about a possible January departure, the talented keeper replied:

“Everything’s possible. It’s a difficult time and hard to accept. I’m trying to stay professional,” Lloris explained to L’Equipe.

“I feel good at Tottenham. I’ve been well received by players, fans and people at club. As for questions (regarding the no.1 spot) you have to ask the coach.”

Lloris joined Tottenham from Lyon on transfer deadline day for a fee of €12.6 million, and was expected to slot right into the starting line-up.

Nevertheless, he has failed to dislodge veteran keeper Brad Friedel and has only made one Premier League appearance this season.

Despite the lack of playing time at club level, Lloris is still considered first choice keeper in the national team.
